This 1928 hybrid from Good and Reese Nursery in Ohio is still one of the most sought-after of the deer resistant butterfly bushes. Each 6-7' tall specimen is topped, from early summer through fall, with long panicles of delightfully fragrant, brilliant violet flowers (RHS 81A)'s only red for color-blind butterflies and folks who write garden catalogs!
